Memphis May Fire bring the heat to a packed house with The Remade in Misery tour in front of a sweltering Saint Louis summer crowd
Wolves at the Gate kicked off the night with energy and the right spirit to keep the already hot crowd jamming into the night. Rolling from one song to the next as the crowd filled in and packed the venue they powered through quite a few of their songs infusing the crowd in the great energy.
Rain City Drive came in hot and fans were automatically singing along with hits old and new. The former musicians of Slaves were seamlessly led by finalist from the Voice’s Matt McAndrew. The power and control of McAndrew vocals had the crowd entrance and head bopping throughout the set.
Even as new songs would normally have people going to restroom and drink breaks – they stayed tight onto every song almost begging for more. They seemed poised to run a headlining US tour sooner than later.
From the lights going down through the end song From Ashes to New was absolutely explosive. Starting with their last albums title track “Panic”, song after song upped the energy and the crowd movement. The sing along, scream along went on through almost a dozen songs, each commanding more participation from everyone in the room and it was given and then some.
Finally the headliners took the stage and it was met with a fever pitch of emotions. The night had gradually built up to this crescendo and Memphis May Fire did not disappoint. Getting their set started was “Blood and Water” and the fan favorites followed tune after bone crushing tune. Each crowd surfer earned their fist bump from Matty Mullins and the bodies flowed. Ending the set with tour mate Danny Case (From Ashes to New) on “Vices” was a top off to a killer night.
The whole show was a celebration of music and the live show all of which were sorely missed for nearly two years and the time was definitely made up for with each band really engaging with their crowd and returning the love back to them. This was definitely a couldn’t miss night of epic live performance art at it’s finest.
